African Necklaces

For preschool last year I was in charge of teaching the kids about different cultures.  What a perfect opportunity to use some of the things I had pinned!  For Africa Day the kids made African plate necklaces.  They painted paper plates lots of different colors.  Here is a picture of one of the kids working hard on his necklace.

It was fun to see how different they all ended up being.

It was a pretty messy project because I used foam plates instead of paper plates.  The paint I had didn't adhere to the plates very well.  If I were to do this project again I would use paper plates and acrylic paint.  I heard from their moms that the kids couldn't stop talking about Africa and the necklaces they made.
